Team Snappy Feet

The event began September 2003 in Annapolis. Amy thought she was walking alone that year but soon began chatting with a gentleman named Dennis and a kind lady named Annie. They spent the next 2 days talking, laughing and of course walking. Amy’s Mom and Dad met her at the finish line that year. Dennis’s wife and son met him and Annie had friends from church. Amy’s Mom was using a wheelchair for the first time as her MS was really flaring up. However, she was still in good spirits and yelling loudly for all of us walkers. Then in 2004, Amy decided that she wanted to walk as a member of a team and started recruiting members. Her Aunt Patty, dear friend Bridgette, and Dennis from the previous walk all said yes to the challenge. We called ourselves Team Snappy Feet. Our team size changed every year with some members who joined for one year and others who took a break either due to weddings or babies and some have stayed tried and true.
One thing that has never changed is our commitment to finding a cure for this disease. Too many people have had to hear the works “You have Multiple Sclerosis”. This needs to change. Events like the challenge walk are one way to help make these changes.

Please help our team fight MS. You can help in one of three ways. It is simple really.
• Prayers and lots of them. We pray for good weather, everyone stays healthy and we all meet our fundraising goals.
• Donate to the team online by using the following link.
• Join either as a walker, one day volunteer, or crew member who helps both days

Words can’t begin to express how thankful and blessed our team feels to have you do one of the three things above.

About MS

When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. Symptoms of MS range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
